The Official Visit of His Excellency, Bishop Scott Rassbach, was a rare treat for the community. His cleverness and insight was a real boost to both the intellectual and spiritual health of the community and our services together were a blessing to everyone involved. We had one baptism, four confirmations, and our Senior Warden, Olivia Riley, was consecrated as an Acolyte, allowing her to assist and serve at the holy altar during Mass. But beyond any advancements that took place “on paper,” there was a general spiritual elevation of the entire community; a gnostic revival, if you will. All of us who were present have been positively impacted by this weekend and without exception, everyone is renewed and restored in their dedication to the Great Work.
Truly, let it be said, “Little is much if God is in it.”
Love, Light, and Gnosis to all.
~Rev. Deacon Joe Revels
Everyone, whether clergy, laity, or unaffiliated friend is invited to our church’s yearly Conclave. Due to continued travel restrictions, our Conclave will once again be held online, starting June 24th and running through June 26th. The lectures will be available on zoom and those that register will receive links to watch them later at leisure. Please consider participating as many speakers allow for questions and those tend to create a whole new lively debate even after the official lecture has ended.
For more information visit the main johannite.org website and click on the Conclave tab or you may go there directly by clicking this link.
We will be having our regular monthly Mass on Sunday, May 22nd at Unity Church, 3597 Parkway Ln, Peachtree Corners, GA 30092 in the class room, Room 111, at 2pm until 4pm. This mass will be in honor of our patron saint, St. John the Baptist. It is being scheduled early in the month so as to not conflict with Conclave (which runs online from June 24th to 26th)
Deacon Joe is expecting a surgery soon and depending on the scheduling of that procedure, this Mass may be subject to change into a Logos Service lead by Rev. Mrs. Olivia Riley.

We are happy to announce the AJC Conclave for 2022! It will be held from June 24th to June 26th. In the interest of keeping the safety and health of our members paramount, this conclave will be held entirely online.
Conclave is an amazing opportunity for us to gather together and learn, socialize, and deepen our understanding, as both a community and individuals. Conclave offers workshops and panel discussions centered around Gnosticism as a whole, as well as the our particular brand of Gnosticism and related practices found within the Apostolic Johannite Church. Conclave is open to both the ordained and the lay community.
This year’s theme will be Gnosis Beyond Gnosticism, and we are happy to announce our keynote speaker, Dr. James McGrath. Dr. McGrath will be speaking on St. John the Baptist and the Mandaeans.
For more information regarding Dr. McGrath, and for a look at our programs and workshops for this year, please visit: https://www.johannite.org/conclave-2022/
We welcome you with warmth and open arms, and hope that you will choose to attend this year’s AJC Conclave!
